Program riders presently come to Dream Riders from families in the midlands of South Carolina, local community group homes, and a variety of special needs agencies who feel an individual may benefit from the program.  Classes are geared to each rider as an individual, and are aimed towards his or her ability.  With the help of our certified instructors and volunteers, a rider gains a feeling of personal accomplishment and a freedom of movement they normally cannot experience in a wheelchair or with other aiding devices.  Most importantly, our riders can benefit physically, emotionally and mentally through the interaction with the horses, instructors, volunteers and fellow equestrians, which makes this a truly unified sport.

Disabilities presently served include the following;

Autism, Brain Trauma, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Emotional ,Disabilities Hearing Impaired, Learning Disabilities, Mental Retardation, Multiple Sclerosis, Rhett Syndrome, Spina Bifida, Spinal Cord Injury, Visually impaired

A Parents Story On What Dream Riders Means To Their Family

“Myself and my whole family feel very strongly about Dream Riders. Our daughter, Jameson, is a survivor of infant stroke. She has cerebral palsy and has been in therapy since she was three months old. Dream Riders offers Jameson an alternative to traditional therapy as well as the opportunity to truly succeed in an individual sport. We were excited about therapeutic riding ever since we learned of it and we feel so grateful that Jameson was accepted into the program at Dream Riders. We have watched our daughter grow in many ways since beginning the program over one year ago. Jameson talks with pride about "her" horse, she is excited on her day to ride, she loves the people who encompass Dream Riders and she feels comfortable and at ease on the farm, so much so that she lets her silly side show. Dream Riders has worked diligently with Jameson to strengthen her right side and to elicit more flexibility in her range. Jameson's core was weakened by her stroke and therapeutic riding is an excellent way to rebuild core strength which in turn enables her to overcome even more physical challenges. I can envision that Jameson may one day pursue horse riding on her own accord, and not just for therapeutic reasons, because Dream Riders has provided such a safe and caring environment for which she can truly succeed.

We love the people and the horses of Dream Riders and we look forward to many more successful years for Jameson and her therapeutic riding.”              Dianne Buckley
